Backup and Restore Domain Email

Server restorations of email from backups are available in the event of network or server failure.

For domain customers using IMAP, there is no email recovery option for accidental deletion. Mail can be recovered only by rolling back to the midnight before an accidental deletion. In this case, all the email received in the hours after the rollback hour will be overwritten by the rollback.

POP accounts download email from the server to the desktop for archiving on the desktop.

Periodically running Time Machine backups archive IMAP and POP email on macOS. Acronis on Windows is a useful backup tool. It can be complex to recover email from a backup and may require a consultant. IMAP mail on the desktop computer is typically backed up on the desktop.
